Fishing Time - Amelia

Wow Amelia, this is a great presentation. It looks like a lot of fun! You are learning a lot about Lures and fishing technology. I particularly like your task description.

  Walt: think critically about what we read.

Task Description: Welcome to my first presentation for Term 2! At the moment we have been learning about fishing technology. I've created an presentation which has examples of fishing lures and what fishing lures are. To understand what lures are my teacher ( Mr Goodwin ) has set up reading's that help us understand what they are. Thanks to those reading's it helped me understand what lures are and if you read the presentation I bet you'll understand what I am talking about. I also used a wonderful site which helped me create a lure that will attract the fish that I am looking for. Thanks for reading my blog post and stay tuned for more!

Describe an insect - Naomi

We have been learning to describe insects in more interesting ways. In particular we have been focusing on using interesting and new vocab. Naomi shares her description of a bumble bee.

WALT: use interesting vocab in our writing.

A bumble bee is harmless and a cute insect, It has six tiny legs and three body parts (head l thorax and the body). Bumble bees help us, and if we did not have bumble bees or other bees we would probably die.
There is a Queen and she has an important job because she stay’s in the hive all day to lay eggs. The other bees are called worker bees, and they mostly do all the work. The worker bees clean the hives and make sure the hive is OK. Bees fly to a flower, and most flowers that catch their eyes are the beautiful purple, blue and yellow coloured flowers. Bees also drink nectar and  get pollen on its back and carry It to their hive.  There are over 20,000 species of bees and one that make a lot of that sticky good stuff is honey bees.

Task description: This task was to learn about bugs and all kinds of native things because our term topic is "Te Taio O Tamaki". Like my WALT we are learning to use describing vocab in writing.

Create your own insect - Paikea

Thanks for sharing this Paikea! What a cool insect Horton is. Check out the lesson here.

Walt: make connections across multiple texts.
Hornton Bug Drawing.png
Horton's is a large bug that protects it self at all times. It lives underground they dig their way with their 4 front sharp legs. Females have just 3 spikes on it’s back to protect it self. The male Hornton has 4 spikes, the 3 spikes on it's back and 1 black spike. All the spikes are dangerous, because if you touch them you get a bad sting, way worse then a bee sting.

Task Description:My class is learning about bug's and learnt what is the different between insect and bugs. We read a couple of some articles and created our own insect. We named it designed it and said what type of behavior it has and last at not least we created our insect. If you have read my paragraph properly you will see that it is a male, because a male has 1 black horn on it's head.
